Ponte Scaligero
#About the Bridge Built as an Escape Route For the Ruler

The Ponte Scaligero Bridge (Castelvecchio Bridge) connects the fortress of Castelvecchio and the left bank of the Adige River. It is behind the fort, near Verona's Arena and Piazza Bra.

The bridge was built in the Middle Ages by the ruler of the city, the Cangrande II della Scala, of the Scaligero family. In building the bridge, he prepared for himself a way out of the fortress, in case of a siege or a fortified fortification against an enemy on the gate.

For many years, since the Middle Ages, the bridge has survived earthquakes and prolonged wear and tear, but the bridge, which has survived all the ravages of nature, has not survived human vandalism. During World War II, the bridge was blown up by the German army when they fled Allied troops attacking from the south. Only after the war was the bridge be restored.

It is very pleasant to walk on this bridge, especially in the evening and see the view of the river and the beautiful city. Along the entire length of the bridge you will see stalls where artists sell works of glass, wood, ceramics and handicrafts. There are also a number of street food stands and drinks.

Galata Bridge
#About the World's Biggest Draw Bridge

Galata Bridge was built in 1994 above the Bosphorus and is considered one of the best vantage points of the city. It is the largest draw bridge in the world.

Galata Bridge reveals a wonderful view of the Istanbul skyline, paved with minarets and churches. It is an exciting urban landscape, one of the oldest and most impressive cities in the world and undoubtedly one of the most inspiring and historic ones in the world. If in the past the city authorities charge residents a half-tax, today you can view from here in the landscape free of charge.

The current bridge is not the first one built here. Plans to bridge the Bosphorus were made in the city as early as the 15th century. Leonardo da Vinci was in charge too, and Michelangelo was also invited to design such a bridge, but rejected the request.

The first bridge was finally built here, only in the middle of the 19th century. Various bridges have been built here, all of them connected between the old city of Istanbul and the newer neighborhoods on the other side. Five bridges were built here.

#About the bridge that connects Asia to Europe

The Bosphorus Bridge is a bridge in Istanbul, linking the Asian part of the city with its European part. Crossing the bridge is over the Straits of Bosphorus, straits that separate the continents.

The bridge itself is a suspension bridge, 1,510 meters long and 39 meters wide. Although they dreamed of building it since the 5th century BC, it was built only in 1973, when it cost about $ 200 million.

This bridge is spectacular in its beauty, both in the view from it and in the unique experience of the passage between it, between the two continents.


#tips
To pass the bridge there is a toll on the Asian side of the bridge.

Due to many cases of suicide, it is now impossible to cross the Bosphorus by walking, but only in vehicles.

#About the Bridge of Locks of Love

How much do we love romance? Especially when it is expressed in a lock that is eternal.

The Art Bridge has become the most well known bridge with love locks whose keys have been tossed into the flowing river to symbolize eternal love. This is a pedestrian bridge in Paris. It crosses the Seine River and is located between the Louvre Museum and the Court House. The bridge sidings are made out of steel, and today are almost completely covered with locks that have the couples names or initials written on them.

This tradition began in 2008, when couples began attaching locks to the bridge above the Seine. Some say that these small additions are not a pretty sight, and enhance the likelihood that the bridge will collapse from the weight. There is also threat of the river being polluted by the all the rust from the tossed keys.

In the summer of 2013 the Parisian municipality came to a stance about this issue, having to do with the weight these locks were putting on the bridge. The city decided to take down the locks, and stop this tradition from continuing. Two glass panels have been added to cover the steel edges, and stop any more locks from being added.



#The History of the Bridge

Between the years 1801 - 1804 9 metal arches formed the first metal bridge in Paris - the Bridge of the Arts. The interesting invention came from Napoleon, who was inspired by an English design. At first, designers Louis-Alexandre de Cessart and Jacques Dillon Conçoivent wanted the bridge to give a sense of a garden with green trees, flowering flowers and benches. To this day, the bridge is a pleasant walking area, allowing only for pedestrian crossing.

Since 1803 the bridge has been renovated several times.

In 2014, after years of apprehension, part of the railings of the fence collapsed due to the weight of the locks placed on it by hundreds of loving couples. In June 2015, the locks were removed from the bridge.

On the pleasant summer evenings you will find street musicians here, a wonderful view and perfect corners for romantic and family picnics.
Karlv Most
Charles Bridge
#About the Ancient Bridge

Charles Bridge (Karlův Most) is the oldest bridge in Prague and connects Lesser Town to the Old City. It is best known for its 30 Baroque sculptures on its sides, and is a major tourist attraction in Prague. Throughout the day there are improvised music performances, a variety of street artists performances for tourists and vendors selling souvenirs and products to tourists.

The crowded bridge, built under the protection of King Karl, was designed by Prague's important Gothic architect, Peter Parler. The cornerstone of the ancient bridge was laid in 1357.

At both ends of the bridge are ancient towers. In the past, they were part of the fortifications of the city and can now be seen below.

The view from the bridge is breathtaking, as the sight of the minarets of the churches in the city, with St. Vitus Cathedral at the top, always overlooks the bridge. In the evening, the sight is even more enchanting, with the sparkling lights, the romance in the air and the Prague Castle, illuminated by a multitude of lights and floodlights, making the entire region a spectacle of spectacular lights.



#The Statues on the Charles Bridge

On the Charles Bridge itself stands an impressive line of sculptures. The statues were placed on the bridge, gradually, when the rulers of the Czech Republic and Prague added more and more statues to the bridge, until their number reached 30.

The sculptures here, by the way, are copies of the original sculptures that were once here . The replacement took place in recent decades, after the original sculptures were damaged by the weather and were finally removed from the bridge.

If you look at the eighth statue on the left, as you walk from the Old City towards Mala Strana, you will see a small white figure. The reason she is white are the thousands of tourists who touch the statue and "beautify" it in their hands. The reason is the widespread belief that touching the image of holiness will bring about fulfillment of the wishes of the person concerned.

Indeed, this is the first statue erected on the Charles Bridge around 1683. It is a monument to the memory of Saint John of Nepomuk (Saint Jana Nepomuckého), a Christian saint who was thrown in 1391 from the bridge to the river because he refused to reveal the queen's confessions. A look at the base of the statue will show you the bronze relief that symbolizes his martyrdom.

#About the Brooklyn Bridge

On the Brooklyn Bridge hundreds of thousands of people pass each day. There is a reason it is so popular, it is one of the most famous sites in New York, and is one of the symbols of the city. From the 19th century the bridge was considered one of the architectural wonders, and was declared a National Monument in the United States.

The view from the bridge is wonderful of the New York skyline, with skyscrapers and fancy building, it is really great!

Some statistics:

The bridge weighs about 14,700 tons. The bridge manages to stand up thanks to the 2 kilometers of thick cables that are used for the suspension.

In its first years, when it was opened for traffic in 1883, it was the largest steel bridge in the world.

Construction of the bridge began in 1869, and continued for 14 years. It cost about $18 million. A surprising fact about the bridge is that out of the 600 workers that were involved in the construction, 27 were killed.



#The Tragic Story Behind Building the Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge is a real American family project. It was designed by John Augustus Roebling, an architect born in Germany that was an expert on suspended bridges. A tragic story, at the start of the building he was injured in a ferryboat accident, and his leg was crushed. He died several weeks later of Tetanus.

Work on the bridge was continued by his son, Washington Roebling. He also needed to pay a heavy price after he was injured during construction and was partially paralyzed. This is when Roebling's wife, Emily Warren Roebling, began to overlook the construction at the instruction of her husband. For 11 years she overlooked the engineers and workers, and in 1883 the bridge was opened for traffic. Emily was the first person to walk on the bridge.

27 workers out of the 600 were killed during the construction.



#The Brooklyn Bridge for Tourists

The bridge is a must-see for anyone coming to New York. The pedestrian lane is full of excited tourists. It is possible to walk across, from Manhattan to Brooklyn. Just start walking!

#Short Stories about the Brooklyn Bridge

In 1883 many people were worried that the bridge was not strong enough, and feared its collapse. The creative solution to this problem was by the owner of the famous circus P. T. Barnum, to bring all his circus animal to cross the bridge, even his heavy elephants. Imagine to yourself seeing this comical event. After this parade, no one was afraid anymore of the bridge's collapse.

Another thing, a little less nice...in 1883 someone screamed loudly that the bridge is falling down, and the 30,000 people who were on the bridge all tried to run away in panic and fear. Unfortunately, during the mass scramble, 12 people were trampled to death...



#Tips

Walking along the Brooklyn Bridge will give you an insane view of the New York skyline and skyscrapers.

Tower Bridge
#About London's Most Famous Bridge

The Tower Bridge connects London's Citadel Hill to Southwark Quarter. It stretches above the Thames and combines elements of a suspension bridge and a raised bridge.

The reason for this is that at the end of the 19th century, the London municipality tried to solve two main problems in a creative way: one was allowing pedestrian and buggy traffic flow, while on the other hand maintaining ship passage entering the harbor near the bridge, also known as “The Pool of London." The public was invited to try come up with a creative solution and out of 50 different proposals the city engineer Horace Jones was chosen.

The bridge has a sophisticated mechanism designed for its diverse functions. There are two main bascules which lift in order to allow river traffic to pass. These parts of the bridges rise to an angle of 86 degrees. The passage of the ships causes no harm to pedestrians, who can continue walking on the special elevated passage designed for this purpose (61 meters). Despite this, the elevated passage was not very popular due to dozens of stairs pedestrians were required to climb in order to reach the crossing. They preferred to wait until the ships passed. The elevated passage, which was abandoned most of the time, became a refuge for prostitutes and thieves, and it was closed in 1910. It reopened in In 1982, this time with an internal exhibition documenting the history of the famous bridge ...



#Construction of the Bridge

The construction of the bridge lasted 8 years and was built by 432 workers supervised by 5 engineers. The length of the bridge is 244 meters. It is comprised of two identical towers 65 meters high. The weight of each of the bascules that rise to allow river is 1,000 tons. In 1974, with the development of technology, steam engines were replaced by electric motors.

The colors of the bridge (identical to the colors of the flag: blue, red and white) were painted only in 1977, in honor of the 25th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's rule.

Recently, a glass floor at the height of 42 meters was added to the bridge, providing a spectacular view of the waters of the Thames, the roads and pedestrians. The cost of its construction amounted to $1.7 million. The glass panels are 11 meters wide and 8 inches thick, and their weight is approximately half a ton.


Williamsburg Bridge
Williamsburg Bridge
#About the Bridge

The bridge connects the southeast part of Manhattan, the Lower East Side to the neighborhood of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. The Williamsburg Bridge brought about a flourishing to the old Brooklyn neighborhood, and started a flow of people to it. On the bridge there are lanes for transportation and train tracks.

Construction on the bridge began in 1896, and it was opened to the public in 1903. Until 1924 this suspension bridge was considered the largest in the world, it is the length of 2,227 meters, and the height of 102 meters. The width of the bridge is 36 meters. The cost of construction totaled at no less than $12 million.

In the 1980's the bridge went through a few renovations.


#About the Elusive, and Brave Acrobat from the Bridge

In 2011 the acrobat Seanna Sharpe, brave as she is, performed an acrobatic trapeze show at the height of 87 meters on the Williamsburg Bridge. Cops reached the area below really fast, and waited for her to descend so they could arrest her. Sharpe was not satisfied with her awesome performance, and after she descended she began escaping by running on the bike lane. The cops ran after her, and like a real criminal, she managed to keep away from the cops until the other side of the bridge when they caught up with her.

You thought the story is over? Once Sharpe was caught, and her hands were handcuffed behind her head, with her flexibility she managed to bring her hands forward. Sharpe said that the real reason she gave that incredible performance was to get over her fears, and give others inspiration to handle their fears as well.

Great job!

#About the Roman Bridge That Was Rebuilt After Being Blown in the War

The Ponte Pietra Bridge, or Ponte Pietra, on the Adige River, is an ancient Roman bridge that continues to function as a useful bridge in Verona. In fact, it is the only Roman bridge left in the city and is very impressive.

Not all the bridge is authentic. The Roman part was destroyed and completed with parts from the Middle Ages. In World War II, all the bridges of Verona, the Pietra Bridge was also blown up and destroyed. It was the German army that destroyed it, while fleeing from Allied armies.

Only after the war did the bridge get restored. This happened after they collected all the stones from the river, one at a time. The collected stones were then meticulously arranged and reconstructed from the bridge as a whole, with the necessary completion of course. Notice the different colors of the bridge stones. Each color of the stones represents another period in the history of the bridge.

From the bridge you can enjoy a great view of the city of Verona and its harbor. Take note of the opposite bank and the tower that protects the bridge. Behind it, by the way, you can see the back side and the bell towers of the beautiful churches in the Old City.


#Task for Children

Look for as many ancient Roman inscriptions as the ancient ones on the bridge in ancient times. Those who find the most get ice cream...


#Tips
In the Ponte Pietra area there are a number of nice restaurants and bars. In these restaurants you can enjoy a romantic meal in the city of Romeo and Juliet.

Lion's Gate Bridge
#About the Bridge that Connects Stanley Park to the City

Vancouver's famous bridge is the Lion's Gate Bridge. It is a brightly lit bridge at night that crosses the Burrard Inlet and leads from Stanley Park and downtown Vancouver to the north of the city.

The Lion's Gate is a suspension bridge with three lanes, about two kilometers long, or just 1,823 meters. It is very reminiscent of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge and was built the same year in 1938. The road is 75 meters above sea level, allowing large ships to pass beneath it. The bridge is supported by columns at a height of 111 meters above sea level, on which the roads are located.

The official name of the Lion's Gate Bridge is the First Narrows Bridge. In fact, the bridge connects between the city of Vancouver and the North Coast, belonging to the province of North Vancouver or West Vancouver.

The name of the bridge comes from a pair of cast bronze lion statues, created by the sculptor Charles Marega, erected in 1939. They are located on both sides of the southern approach to the bridge and have given it the name "Lions' Gate." What is interesting is that they overlap with a pair of mountain peaks north of Vancouver and that the overall direction of their peaks is the direction of the traffic on the bridge to the north.

The direction of the three lanes of the bridge can be changed, depending on transportation needs and traffic lights. The direction of movement varies, during the day, especially in the central lane. This is to match the traffic patterns at different times throughout the day. In the morning it allows the entry of many cars into the city and in the evening - a mass exit home.


#Tips

For those interested in looking at the bridge, the best observation point in the city is the prospect point at Stanley Park.

Ada Bridge
#About the Wonderful Bridge of Belgrade


Between 2008-2011 Ada Bridge was built, the newest bridge of Belgrade, built and crossing the Sava River. It is a cable bridge designed by local architects. It was built across the river and connected to the island of Ada Ciganlija, which for this reason was even expanded and reinforced with concrete so that it could firmly hold the foundations of the bridge.

The bridge connects both sides of Belgrade, old and new. It was built to reduce the burden of transportation in the city center and did indeed ease the burden on the city.

But beyond the important role in organizing the movement in Belgrade, the bridge became one of the symbols of the city of Belgrade. The modernist design, especially at night, has contributed to this, with blue lighting that illuminates it and highlights to all its special appearance, which is based on many metal cables that hold it.

Ada Bridge has a beautiful beauty that makes it one of the most photographed attractions in Belgrade. It is even possible to photograph it from a distance and then it looks wonderful, especially at night.

Manhattan Bridge
#About the Manhattan Bridge that Shakes in the Wind

The well-known bridge of New York connect between lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, it is a huge suspension bridge, with a particularly strong presence. The total length of the bridge from end to end is 890 meters. It was open for crossing on 1909, about one year before construction was officially finished. The cost of the bridge was $31 million.

Originally, the bridge was only supposed to service trains, however with time, it was expanded for new uses. The design of the bridge was by Leon Moisseiff. If the name is not familiar to you, we will let you know that Moisseiff planned the Tacoma Narrows Bridge that collapsed in 1940.

Because this was the third bridge to be built in New York, after the Brooklyn and Williamsburg Bridges, it received the fascinating name - Suspension Bridge Number 3, until the name was changed to the name we all know today.

The bridge has 7 lanes, 4 train tracks, a bike line, and walking paths. About 75,000 vehicles cross the bridge every day, and about 3,000 pedestrians. Another amazing fact is that the trains carry about 320,000 passengers over the bridge every day.


#Design of the Manhattan Bridge

Originally, the design of the was supposed to be innovative and unprecedented. The architect, Gustav Lindenthal, offered to replace the cables that were typical for construction at the time, with steel chains. Even for the innovative and modern idea, it was moved to the side with the coming of a new Mayor, George McClellan Jr.

Finally, Leon Moisseiff was in charge of the construction of the bridge, without much success. The bridge sways and shakes to this day. The train tracks on the sides of the bridge cause the bridge to shake and sway the bridge, and as trains have become more and heavier, the shaking increases. Throughout the years a few renovations have been made to the bridge.

The bridge attracts many tourists who like crossing the bridge, or climb the bridge to get a nice city view.

Széchenyi Chain Bridge
#About the Suspension Bridge in Budapest

The bridges that connect the parts of Budapest, above the romantic Danube River, turn the river into a jaw-dropping shining pearl. Without a doubt, the prettiest of these is the Széchenyi Chain Bridge (Széchenyi Lánchíd) a suspension bridge, that was built as the first permanent bridge that connects Buda and Pest. This bridge begins in Clark Adam Square, across the river, towards the inner city of Pest. There it connects to Roosevelt Square, near Gresham Palace and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

The length of the Széchenyi is 350 meters. This was a project by two 'Clarks." In 1839 the engineer William Clark designed the bridge, but he had to pack up and leave Hungary quickly due to prior commitments. So finishing the bridge in 1849 was the architect Adam Clark.

The bridge quickened the union of Buda and Pest, that were becoming one city thanks to the large growth in the 19th century.

In 1945, with the Nazis surrender from the Red Army, the German army bombed the bridge. It was restored in 1949. So it became a monumental attraction in itself. For its nice structure, especially at night when it is reflected on the Danube River. The bridge is surrounded by statues of handsome lions, that have become the commercial symbol of the bridge.

On summer weekends, the bridge becomes a wide boulevard and different performances and attractions for tourists take place.


#The Tragic Story of the Lions on the Bridge

The Suspension Bridge, established in 1849, is considered the prettiest bridge in Budapest. Among other things, it is known for the nice lion statues on its sides. Local legends says that after finishing the statues of the lions, the artist noticed that he forgot to add a tongue to one of them. And out of desperation and sadness, he committed suicide and jumped off the bridge.

However, all the lions on the bridge have their tongues! So is the legend true? Walk around the bridge and see if you can find a lion without his tongue...

Capilano Suspension Bridge
#About the Longest Hanging Bridge in the World

The Capilano Suspension Bridge is a rope bridge located north of Vancouver, Canada, connecting the two banks of the Capilano River that flows below.

The very long bridge, nearly 140 meters long, has a particularly strong wooden floor, stretched over the two metal cables that make it, allowing a passage of 70 meters above the Capilano River channel below and between the two sides of the canyon.

Thanks to this bridge, the longest hanging bridge in the world and one of the most famous bridges in the world, there are at least 1,300 people passing over the abyss!

Trembling and swaying under the feet of those marching on it, this bridge is a little scary at first, but it brings a lot of humor and a smile to walk on it, at least to most of the young children and adults in their souls. In any case, the crossing on the bridge is a very nice experience for those who dare to walk over the abyss beneath this swinging bridge. The bonus, which is discovered during the walk between bank to bank, over the riverbed, is a mesmerizing landscape of forests.

More than once, the Capilano Bridge was defined, with a certain innocence, as the eighth wonder of the world. It may be exaggerated, but one way or another, this bridge is considered one of the most popular tourist attractions in Canada and over half a million visitors come to it each year.

The hanging bridge is located in the southern part of the Capilano Park, named after Capilano, one of the region's leading Indian tribes. Originally, the first Capilano Bridge was built in 1889 by a Scottish engineer named George Grant, making it the oldest attraction of Vancouver. Incidentally, the same engineer built it so that the owner of the land beyond the stream could reach his lands. But the construction of the current bridge was only 67 years later, in 1956.


#What Can Be Seen Here?

The Capilano Bridge is considered the longest suspension bridge in the world for pedestrians. It runs for about 137 meters and passes over the Capilano River, which flows 70 meters below it. The bridge, which connects one piece of forest to another, is not the only one of its kind, but unlike the other hanging bridges, it is the longest and most impressive bridge.

After passing the bridge, you will meet on the other side great walking paths within the rainforest you are in. Where you can get to know the fauna and flora in this wonderful forest.

On the other side of the bridge there is also a nice display on the geology and zoology of the area.

Ask for a certificate with your name, indicating your walk on Capilano's longest hanging bridge.


#Tips

The crossing on the bridge is not recommended for those suffering from fear of heights and dizziness.

In the passage with small children, watch over them and give them a hand.
